Sally Nyolo is one of Cameroon’s most well established singers on the international scene. For a while she sang with the all-women a Capella band Zap Mama, but in her successful solo career she has given a new voice to bikutsi, a traditional female-dominated Cameroonian musical genre. On her latest, seventh album, Tiger Run, she marks out fresh musical territory, exploring the classic 6/8 bikutsi rhythms, but also soul, funk and even opera. She talks to RFI about letting the big cat get under her skin.


Sally Nyolo is in concert at Paris’s New Morning on 15 October.
